Hi,

I think you should have this abscess treated correctly by a vet, with the cat under anesthesia hopefully. Your cat most likely isn't going to cooperate with home treatment and it's going to cause him unnecessary pain. It's not always as easy as you think to treat an abscess. The area needs to be flushed and cleaned as well as possible, and sometimes a penrose drain is needed.

Your cat must already be in a lot of pain with his abscess. He can become very, very ill if it isn't treated ASAP. The infection can travel throughout his body.

Please do the right thing and take your cat to a vet for treatment.

Regards,
PHKitkat
